Histories of Education and Youth

This course explores the varied and interconnected histories of education and youth in the Global South during the 19th and 20th centuries. Relying upon textual, audio, and visual archives, the course unpacks the categories of youth, ideological contestations, as well as the nature of resistance in formal and informal educational spaces. The themes broadly include the state, family, gender, market, and community identity to understand the making and unmaking of youth cultures, pedagogy, and aspirations. This is an interdisciplinary elective drawing from the fields of history, youth studies, anthropology, and education.
